Go Beyond Adulting to Become an Emotional Grown-Up
MASTERING ADULTHOOD is a (first of it’s kind) multi-media self-help book to help you go beyond adulting and become a full-fledged emotional grownup. In QR code linked skills videos, Dr. Fielding will guide you to lock into what lights you up, identify what’s getting in the way of successfully pursuing it, and build the skills you need to more flexibly work with the emotions that show up, when you pursue what matters to you.
Whether you’re graduating from college, starting a career, trying to gain financial independence, or creating meaningful relationships—entering into the world of grownups can be more than a little overwhelming. And while there are plenty of fun books for young adults offering advice on how to fix a leaky faucet or find the right apartment, none really delve into the deeply emotional aspects of growing up.
In Mastering Adulthood, psychologist Lara Fielding offers practical evidence-based skills to help you cope with the feelings of anxiety, depression, anger, and stress that may be getting in the way of living an independent, fulfilling adult life you love. Drawing on case examples from young adults she’s worked with in her private practice, Fielding provides empowering strategies and skills for managing difficult emotions using mindfulness, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT).
When you experience big life changes that cause you stress, you need emotional flexibility to reach your goals and be your best self. Using the skills in this book, you’ll learn to take charge of your emotional habits, stop feeling stuck, and discover what really matters to you.

The holidays can bring out the best and worst in us. When we try to over control situations and our feelings, things can go terribly wrong.
OMG seriously! This sucks! I can’t believe I have to do this. Complaining, we all do it sometimes. We vent, describe, assert, and tell stories of dissatisfaction. Of course we do! Like all emotional habit patterns, we get a juicy satisfaction from the act of venting...
“Okay! What’s next” was the thought that constantly ran through Martha’s head, like a metronome keeping her in beat to her non-stop lifestyle. Anytime there was a beat, a pause, a silence – “What’s next?! – egged her on. Martha was indeed a work-a-holic! Like all...
